DJM Aerial Solutions Tackle Wind Turbines In Recent Asset Integrity Blade Inspection Utilising Their Recently Acquired Asset Inspection UAV.
Asset Integrity Inspection was the order of the day for Teesside drone company DJM Aerial Solutions who recently took on the Asset Integrity Inspection providing structural and visual integrity survey of a full set of blades associated with a land-based wind turbine using their Asset Inspection UAV Matrice 210 and Z30 configuration to complete the wind turbine inspection.
Wind turbines and wind parks tend to naturally be positioned in areas of high-velocity wind for obvious reasons and can be sometimes hazardous to navigate during the limited shutdown periods, which are generally brief, well planned and do not like to wait for milder cycles of weather. Wind turbine inspection can be very temperamental and should be executed to the highest standard.

However, DJM Aerial Solutions executed the Asset Integrity Inspection in a safe and efficient manner, in line with their 100% safety record, utilising their Asset Integrity Inspection specific UAV the Matrice M210 and Zenmuse Z30 payload configuration. The wind turbine inspection technique required for blade inspection is carried out at set intervals throughout the year staying in line with relevant regulations.
DJM Aerial Solutions were able to capture the required data from their Asset Inspection from an extended distance of around 50m allowing for enough redundancy to safely maintain any unplanned changes to their operation. Such as high volume gusts of wind or interference from the localised EMF around the general confines of the wind turbines in the immediate area.
The M210 was little affected by either of these possible occurrences, performing extremely well in gusts of around 20 mph and continuing to maintain consistent stability throughout the length of the wind turbine inspection.
Wind Turbines and Blade Inspection has always been part of our long-term plan. Given our background in heavy industry and roles offshore, we are well placed to carry this forward.
DJM Aerial Solutions have proven that our diverse expertise in the field combined with our Asset Inspection specific equipment and tools have us positioned well ahead of our adversaries. Given that we can provide the experience and specific UAV and combine it with relevant data-based results and excellent report composition skills, required for potential classification societies or insurance providers.
Asset Integrity Inspection
Wind Turbine Blade inspection is a small part of DJM Aerial Solutions asset inspection arsenal. We have the specific UAV and equipment and combine it with our diversity in personnel, the experience and background in an engineering environment and the personality and professionalism to boot. Why not give us a call. We might be able to help.
